Hi all,

I just joined this forum/site on the recommendation of a friend. I just purchased a canon AE-1program (which was the camera I learned on in high school back in the early 80s) and I was looking for a place to help me get my chops back.

I am mostly interested in B/W photography with 35mm. I am right now in the process of building a dark room.

I haven't shot 35mm in well over a decade, but it seemed a good time to get back in the hobby.

I am a research analyst and ex-brewer at Sierra Nevada Brewing company, and I look forward to some cool discussions about photography.

I just got here, so I will try not to be a noob too much. First few days I will befriend the search function so I don't ask the same questions you guys have answered a billion times.

My motivating force for getting back into 35mm was:

A: Fun!
B: Cheap now with darkroom equipment selling for a song.
C: Trip to Africa and an opportunity for great pictures.

Camera is on its way, so I figured I should start brushing up before it gets here.....

Word!

I just found a deal on an enlarger I think. From ordering a camera to obsessing in 1 day! sweet!

Now, if I just could remember what I learned in 1984......

1984 -- no sweat! It is like falling off a bike -- one never forgets!

I presume you'll be using Dr. Beers' developer when you make prints ...

We have tentative plans for breakfast in Chico soon on our way south.

Welcome from the Fidalgo Island (Washington - the Salish Sea).
